The main objective of this first-of-its-kind M.Sc (Data Science) Programme is to enable the students to get a very good exposure to the promising field of data science. The PG Programme will lay a strong theoretical foundation that will enable the students to develop their own customized data science algorithms needed for deriving insights from very large data sets, which are now continuously generated, thanks to IoT, Social Media and Digitisation. Apart from the regular class room interactions, the PG Programme will involve a lot of guest lectures by industry experts, intensive lab work and discussion of several business case studies. B.Sc. (Statistics / Mathematics / Computer Science) students are eligible to join the course.
